About The Symbols ...
Naturally people want to know what these symbols mean. First, here's a bit about the process I use to create them.
I'll be walking down the street thinking about the meaning of life, or about an interaction I just had, or a story I've read. Suddenly I spot something that seems connected somehow. A special shape or an image or word triggers me, and I begin to feel that a "darling" is ready to be born. I stay open to inspiration this way, and I do my best to record it in the moment.
It seems that constructing the design is an excercise I do to understand its deeper meaning. Usually right away more signs appear and conversations are had, often with myself. I look for a napkin or a laptop and start to sketch. I use my conscious mind and drawing skills to begin with, and I try to remain open to things around me and to mistakes or inspirations along the way. That's how it usually goes...
In the table below, are images of my Darlings posted as I have produced them, along with "key" words or ideas that inspired me. I know people want to know what the symbols mean, but I encourage you to add to their meanings by tuning into your own reactions and sharing them with me. Help me to give them more meaning by adding what you see!
